I've been googling for a JQuery example. I have an aspx page. I have a link on it. When user clicks it, i want to popup a JQuery popup. On it, i want (for now) to have a dropdown of states. I have list of states in the from database and bind to it...

I can do this with Telerik control but i want to use JQuery. I think I need AJax to read from database. But not sure.
Anyone with an example?
